an alliance with al qaeda, they've worked with al qaeda in pakistan and afghanistan. one of my constituent's son was killed by nine chechen rebels. so they're in the fight. he goes over there, the tools of trade of warfare for al qaeda are precisely the devices he built, this cooker pressure device, explosive device. there are reports they had suicide vests on. you don't learn that overnight. i personally believe that this man received training when he was over there and he radicalized from 2010 to the present. and then nine months after he comes back from the chechnya region, he pulls off the largest terror attack since 9/11. >> so you see influence by al qaeda or other terrorist groups in getting help and assistance from them. you think it's the latter. >> i think it's very probable that when he's in the region that's a very dangerous region that they're known for his tactics that he possibly could have been trained at that point. i believe he was already radicalizing. i'm questioning what the father's role is. the fathers always play a heavy role. the father's part of this chechen revol
the plotters had help from al qaeda. wow. while police said the suspects had the capacity to carry out the threat, there was no imminent threat to the public. they say the plot was not connected to the boston marathon bombings. we'll be right back. >>> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was of course, white house spokesman jay carney short by before 1:00 p.m. today making clear the boston suspect will not be treated as an enemy combatant. as some republican senators includes lindsay grahey graham for. senator graham challenged them saying the decision they made premature. let's listen. >> here's my concern. as a lawyer for over 30 years, sieve ville wrap acivilian and strongly support the concept that no criminal defendant should ever be required to incriminate themselves while they're in custody of the government. every nation at war should have the ability to defend themselves by gathering ly exclusive concepts. i believe our nation is at war. the enemy is radical i
as the taliban, al qaeda and affiliated groups. the question i have regarding this case, is there any association between these two individuals and the groups i just named to allow enemy combatant status to be conferred upon the suspect in boston. >> with no ties to foreign terrorist networks, there would be little difference between tsarnaev and other so-called home-grown and lone wolf terrorists, including timothy mcveigh and ted kosinski. if the tsarnaev brothers were acting alone, the prevention of similar attacks becomes significantly more complex. american law enforcement officials currently track terror networks by tapping into chatter, monitoring videos and reports of field agents, but even if the fbi is tipped off to potential american terrorists, there's are limits to what can be done. "the new york times" reports that after the tib questioned tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011, officials had quote no authority to watch him because they found no terrorism activity at the time. this scenario that an american could and would do this while flying under the radar raises serious questions regarding n
that this is a relatively crude device. a device used by al qaeda, used by the taliban in the past, but, i want to stress this, from all of our sources, from all of our reporters, producers and koeshts, zero evidence, zero evidence of any communications, any intelligence suggesting a foreign terrorist involvement as yet. and even though this has been used, this type of technology has been used by al qaeda and taliban in the past, it is also sadly in this age of the internet a technology you can go online and essentially find a how-to to build a bomb like this. no one has ruled out domestic terrorism, or this being a single lone wolf bomber, perhaps someone with help. right now, they say those are among the many, many questions. >> and it's significant also that no one has claimed responsibility. there's almost a thunderous silence, if you will. that speaks volumes to a lot of these investigators. >> if you look past backwards, past terrorist attacks, obviously if it's al qaeda, if it's al qaeda an the arabian peninsula, even a domestic political group trying to make a point, often there's a claim of resp
used by say al qaeda or other groups. that may start to provide some answers. >> i heard you say earlier the fact these weren't big devices would perhaps suggest it isn't an al qaeda operation, that they would go for a more dramatic impact with the devices. also, there are these ball bearings we now know have been used. any significance to that? >> well, you know, piers, here in new york, we had this disrupted subway plot which was, in fact, al qaeda related and it involved backpack bombs. these explosions, while horrific and have caused horrific injury, what we're hearing from law enforcement sources are that they were not terribly sophisticated. they were small. it would have been much worse if it was a higher explosive like c-4 or plastic explosive so you just can't really tell yet. we don't know enough about the forensics to know was this a domestic terrorist group. it's possible, right. we've seen things like oklahoma city, that tragedy. so it could be a domestic group. law enforcement has been careful to say that's the question they can't answer tonight, domestic or foreign
them into a. chechens don't show up on the radar. historically chechens involved in al qaeda almost from the first days. and the early 1990s. so, it's possible that some how these two young men were radicalized remotely or on the internet and given references, go online and learn how to make a bomb using this video tape, that sort of thing, but, as jonathan said, what the government is doing right now is looking at all of their travel records, phone records, intempbt records, to see if they were in contact with anyone else. >> okay, dick, i want to go back to martha, of course, you traveled to all of these regions and anything you want to add what dick was just saying? >> one thing that struck me, the only thing that this young man had ever talked about was his discomfort with the wars in afghanistan and iraq, that would be the majority of americans as well. even that doesn't tell you anhing. g around these regions, one thing that i noticed in yemen, pakistan, the groups are splintered now, they're just totally splintered. it's hard to follow, hard to see who's doing what, so many v
about the suspects in the boston marathon bombing. one brother's possible ties to al-qaeda linked terror group. i'm megyn kelly. >> megyn: senator dianne feinstein telling fox news there are three main questions lawmakers want answered. when did russia raise the red flag on tamerian tsarnaev. what did he do over in russia for six months? what did the f.b.i. do about it? we are learning that federal charges could come as early as today against the surviving suspect dzhokar tsarnaev. they are questioning the 19-year-old in his hospital bed. we can't confirm that. the reports are he is responding substantively via writing because they said he had shot himself in the head and mismisfiring and cannot speak. and older brother's wife, katherine russell she converted to islam at the request of her husband and could potentially be a treasure trove of information on this man. our chief correspondent catherine herridge joins us. >> reporter: that's right. investigators are focusing on tamerian tsarnaev trip to russia and whether he had contact with other suspected terrorists. republican briefed by
and deadly outreach from al qaeda. the terrorist group in an article entitled "how to make a bomb in your mom's kitchen." was this the man who helped the boston marathon bombers? "newsroom" special coverage of the boston marathon bombings begins right now. good morning to our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer rocketing live from boston. several major developments out of boston this morning. let's get you caught up, if you are just catching up on the latest developments back home. but far from back to normal. beginning next hour, police will take down the first barricades on boylston street, and allow business owners and residents to slowly but surely return home. we're learning more about the terror plot. who was involved? how did they develop it? and why? and the beginning of the end. police say sodzhokhar tsavraev newly released surveillance photos, after the release of an m.i.t. police officer and before the police shoot-out would leave him wounded and his brother dead. and more new developments this morning as well. we're learning about how tsavraev actua
was killed by american forces not too long ago. >> i think a foreign fighter al qaeda dimension of the chechen insurgency is really something that was more historical and really more of a problem before 9/11. al qaeda, you know, had members that would go to chechnya recently. and talking about ayman al zwari who is the leader was arrested in 1996 and spent six months in jail. he told the russians some story that wasn't true and they released him. so that's an indication that al qaeda certainly knows part of this well. i see this as more of a pre 9/11 period when the chechen war was at the height. and the detraction for foreigners, al qaeda, foreign firefighter has also received it as well. >> nic robertson, i appreciate you reporting. juliet kayyem, thank you very much. we are learning more about the suspect's family members. we are going to play you a conversation their mother had with kate walsh. she is still there. and tamerlan's wife katherine has given a brand new statement on the bond. we'll tell you what she is say. and later the unsolved murder of one of tamerlan's frien
however to consider, though. okay? not saying this is associated with the old al qaeda, but like-minded groups tend to pull good tactics off the shelf. in the case of the old al qaeda under bin laden, they were the masters of compartmentalization. we might not be surprised if he kept that information, if not all information, from his wife. now, there's a possibility that she may in some ways have been wh whitting. if he had that type of training, they're very good at the need to know. >> but this is an individual he had a relatively long relationship with. and you're suggesting that he might have been able to hide everything from her? any of his inclinations of hatred toward america if he had that feeling toward america? he would have hidden it all? >> yeah, these are the kind of things invariably being figured out right now. what happens, though, often in a situation like this, if, again, hypothetic hypothetical, someone's very good at compartmenting things. indicators may come out a wife, brother, immediate family or neighbors weren't aware of. then after the fact it starts to
if it is domestic or a foreign even if something that has from someone from the united states. >> you have an al-qaeda cookbooks in how to make bombs. this particular type of bomb was described in inspire magazine which is al-qaeda magazine how to make the bomb in kitchen of your mom was the title. essentially it's what al-qaeda has used and al-qaeda inspired groups have used in different incidents. they have used the shrapnel taped and glued to the side of the pressure cooker. they have used the exact same thing to have the explosive to do as much damage as possible to maim and kill as many people as possible in the vicinity. these particular explosives talking to intelligence officials and others here in washington were not huge. they were not massive explosives but they did cause damage and obviously three are dead. that number could rise since 17 are in critical condition. >> eric: the governor said that president obama will be visiting on boston on thursday. what do we expect to hear from him? >> it's an interfaith service. i expect we will hear from the president like in other services he has at
ott your water is because of this. the summer of 2006, a group of terrorists with links to al-qaeda planned to board a bunch of different planes at hea heathrow in london. to be flying from there to the united states and the way these guys were going to bomb the planes was by bringing soda bottles on board those planes that looked like they contained just soda or water, but in fact, they contained hydrogen peroxide and the other components needed to make bombs. the heathrow guys got caught before they did it, but it is now thanks to them that we have to buy humiliatingly tiny toiletries like this hair goo, right? it's not just security in this case. it's for a reason. hydrogen based bombs. the london bombings of 2005, those were al-qaeda linked terrorists and those were hydrogen peroxide based bombs. those killed 52 people. four years later, there was an american copy cat. in 2009, a guy tried to buy a bunch of hydrogen peroxide from beauty stores near aurora, colorado. it led to the arrest of this guy. he was going to do it in new york instead. on the subway. again, his plan was hy
about this magazine, which is al qaeda sponsored magazine called inspire and in 2010-very detailed account, some graphics and on the screen now, of exactly how you could create and use a pressure cooker as a bomb and it says in the first edition called make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom, it says the pressurized cooker should be placed in crowded areas, more than one of these can be planted to explode at the same time. keep in mind the range of shrapnel of the operation a short range and the pressurized cooker could be placed close to the intended targets and should not be concealed from a barrier such as a wall. what do you make of that? that is pretty specific device being published in a magazine that was believed to be created by al qaeda and its sympathizers. >> that is nothing new. the internet is a wonderful tool but it is also a terrible tool and anybody sitting in the basement right now could find out how to do these things. and magazines like that that have been around i think of the cookbook way back when that also taught many different things and i don't think you can
the attack by itself obviously they put the bomb in their mother's kitchen following the al qaeda instructions on how to make a bomb in your mother's kitchen which appears in inspire magazine. but we believe they did not act alone like mike referred earlier. they have gotten some professional help somehow in putting the bomb together and that's what -- maybe the older brother has been trained in russia when he went back on his trip as part of a bigger operation and they're just an implant in the united states as a part of many like them who are islamists, jihaddists, driven by the cause, yet they're operating in a different city. >> neil: there's a big difference between emphasizing and sympathizing with the brothers and claiming credit, the brothers or they, for what happened in boston. are you saying that these sites are beginning now to take credit and responsibility for the attack. they're not taking credit. these guys are part of the islamic -- doing the work they're doing and they must be a part of a larger cell. not only in members but also overseas. >> neil: "the los angel
puzzling. quote, the two men had direction and guidance from al-qaeda elements located in iran. now that makes no assistance because al-qaeda and sunni eight each other. that's like there was guidance go the united states. at least they made sure that it wasn't carried out no matter where they're from. of course, we're going to talk about boston and the rights associated withdhozvt dhozahar tsarnaev. but in order for me to do that i need to bring in my panel. we have joe williams from political reporter commentator and of course, national coverage editor--whatever reporter with politico. i'm reading all of these. and beth fouhy for yahoo news, and kevin cirilli. you can tell i'm in a fun mood. we want to give you an update. everyone knows that the younger brother was caught on friday after a shootout. i was watching all of joe's tweets on it. that's how i found out about it, literally. but let's watch that on abc. >> the bomb suspects now facing the death penalty. among those who lost their lives, 29-year-old crystal campbell the first of the victims to be laid to rest. the search f
or a person who part or substantially supported al qaeda, the taliban or associated forces engaged in hostilities against the united states. if you have groups inspired in chechnya or anywhere else killing american civilian and done by americans, isn't it the term that needs to change rather than the person doesn't fit the term? >> that's a great question. in fact, i think what you are pointing to is that authorization used military force which was drafted in the wake of 9/11 is outdated and doesn't fit the kind of changing threat that we are facing. we have seriously degraded al qaeda's core but now we are seeing spinoffs and self radicalized cases. and that's going to require a different approach and a different legal basis. simply because the threat environment has changed doesn't mean our constitution is so flexible that we can ignore its provisions. i do think that what we ought to call on the administration to do is come forward with a new structure and to articulate how the rule of law will support protecting the country in this new threat environment. there wasn't a case fo
investigators are considering whether the brothers read al qaeda's online magazine "inspire" to pick up bomb-making skills. of the quanicassee of the three pressure cooker bombs suggest hands on training. >> these individuals were able to reproduce weapons using crude materials off the shelf in an effective manner. that shows me that there is some training there. it's not just something that read. >> earlier today unnamed u.s. official says the working theory of investigators is that the two brothers act willed alone. after a briefing late tote the chairman and ranking member insisted to reporters it was premature to conclude there were no overseas ties adding the fbi is actively reconstructing the 26-year-old's six months in russia, bret. >> bret: thank you more on this with the panel. >> this is a fox news alert. the elvis impersonator has left the building. the part-time musician accused of sending tainted letters to president obama and republican senator is out of jail tonight. not only that all of the charges have now been dropped. the press conference just wrapping um in oxford, missis
in libya tells the state department and the department of defense that al qaeda flags are flying over benghazi, i can't defend my consulate against a coordinated attack, that you do something about it. that when a consulate is under attack and an ambassador is missing for 7 1/2 hours you have the ability to go to their rescue. and after the fact you don't lie to the american people. >> lie to the american people? what does boston benghazi? that's not a clip from last year. that's a clip from this morning. critics on the right are now using the boston attacks to attack the president. to slow down immigration reform. even to talk about trayvon martin. it's not right. joining me now, krystal ball and joan walsh. chris krystal, are you surprised just eight days after the bombing you're hearing stuff like this from a top republican like lindsey graham. >> the only thing you need to know about lindsey gram right now is that he's running for re-election. even though he knows better, even though he knows that dzhokhar, for example, is not going to be tried as an enemy combatant, even though h

and others they say were partly attributed to them, praising osama bin laden and al qaeda and the like, we spoke with some high school friends of dzhokhar. they said he was a normal guy. and they are stunned at the developments. did he ever talk politics. >> never with him. really casual, hang out, smoke pot every now and then, listen to rap music, nothing out of the ordinary, i would not put him aside from my other friends. >> reporter: did he ever talk about america or any hatred for the country. >> not at all, we did not talk about pro america or i'm against america, if i have to pick i wouud never assume he would have those views at all. >> reporter: he lived in cambridge with his mother, there was a controlled explosion at his house by authorities earlier, there is always a concern for potential booby-traps in the house, we have no update on that, but we're expecting an update here this the watertown in about a half hour, we'll bring that you when it develops. melissa: eric thank you. and we're expecting a press conference at 5:30, we will keep our eye on that, if any information come
out an al qaeda attack on a passenger train between canada and the united states. we'll tell you about the damage they hope to inflict in a life report. a lot of news. it is tuesday, april 23rd. a special edition of "starting point" begins right now. >>> he can hardly speak but terror suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev is talking or at least communicating, big new developments this morning in the boston marathon bombing investigation. cnn's jake tapper has learned that tsarnaev is communicating with investigators, and claims that he and his brother pulled off last week's bombing of the marathon and also that their motivation seems to be that of jihadists. cnn's chief washington correspondent and anchor of "the lead" jake tapper is with us this morning. and jake, what are your sources telling you about these communications. >> u.s. government source tells me that in these preliminary interviews with dzhokhar tsarnaev, and he underlines they're preliminary, all the information that dzhokhar is giving needs to be checked out, that investigators are not taking his word for it, but what he is saying
get better at it. >> we know al qaeda had been active in the chechen region. we believe they designed this pressure cooker bomb in boston by looking at plans posted on an al qaeda website. that does not make this an al qaeda linked separation, nl necessarily, but from what you've said and to andrew's point from the russian government saying watch out for this guy, how would you read this? >> al qaeda has been fragmented. after our operations in southwest asia, it's fragmented. so the central head direction of al qaeda doesn't exist any more. >> so al qaeda is more of an idea now. >> yes. it's good news and bad news. there's no central direction. that's good news. but it's bad news. it's all fragmented now and so there are lots of mom and pop al qaeda operations and apparently is one of them. >> does this change your view on profiling? religious, race or anything? >> i'm not adverse to profiling. there's nothing more to be said about that. >> we know most terrorist actions are men aged 18 to 25 years old, general lly loners, right? you don't even need to go on race. you can say if you'

on times square in 2010 by shahzad and also we have to remember "inspire" magazine for al qaeda in arabian peninsula called for terrorist attacks on sports events iconic events. this is both, boston marathon and patriots day is almost the iconic all american event. mass killing of civilians. again, we don't know for certain but, to me, i think we have to be looking toward either al qaeda or off shoot of al qaeda or a self-starter here in the united states, a homegrown terrorist. >> bill: well, i mean, i think the fbi fairly soon will ascertain exactly what the profile is. in fact, there is a press conference coming up around 8:30 we will go to that immediately and the fbi and the boston authorities in a combined press conference. but, at this point, we don't want to speculate, but we do know what it was designed to kill and maim. maim, this is a very disturbing part. the reports are there was shrapnel and ball bearings and things like that. other eyewitness reports have reports of limbs being "boston blown off in horrific way. this wasn't designed to do anything other than create chaos and
banners of karzan, a prophesy evoked by osama bin laden and extreme al qaeda terrorists. and put that together with one other clue. what the uncle said today, which was very interesting. at one point, he said, somebody radicalized them. so for years, now, we've been hearing the warnings of counterterrorism experts about individuals who may go abroad in the united states, come from -- leave the united states, go abroad and become radicalized. and this may be the example that proves their warnings more than any other. it certainly had the biggest impact of any other terrorist case. of any terrorist case we've seen in recent years. >> your insights are very much appreciated. we're going to pick up on them. i'm joined by retired special a.t.f. agent. as well as cliff van zandt. with a welcome to you both. let's pick up on this radicalized notion. we have a description, a very heartfelt description, where one almost feels sad and sympathetic to the unk cle of these two brothers from maryland and he said, you know, i abhor what they've done, he wants no association with them whatsoever
now, one of the only links we have as the chechen involve in the al-qaeda mov movement. are there other conspirators out there? where do they get the radicalization? are there mosques or imam we should look at? who did his brother meet with in russia, chechnya? these are questions that can be contained only if he does not get miranda rights. right now, there is a public safety exception, that will expire in 48 hours. if that, he can lawyer up and stay quiet. i'm not interested -- he will be convicted one way or another. right now they need to get intelligence. this is a unique opportunity to go to treasure throw of intelligence. >> chris: excuse me, i want to get to intelligence. i know you have been briefed this week. what can you tell us about plot at this point? was there foreign involvement? what do you know of anything about the older brother, tamerlan's trip to russia last year? >> we do not know specifics. however we do know there was likely a call from russia. before he went back to tagastan and chechnya, asking about it. conjecture would lead one to believe it

. he said the brothers built the bomb with guidance from an online publication put out by the al qaeda off shoot in yemen called "inspire." it's written in english with instructions on how to build a bomb used last week. tsarnaev told authorities the motive for their attack has to do with their religious fervor, he and his brother, and anger over the united states' wars in afghanistan and iraq. meanwhile told we're seeing new images from that dramatic shooting in watertown at 1:00 a.m. friday morning. they come from an eyewitness whose apartment overlooked the fire fight. the brothers are seen there crouching behind a car. at least one of them seems to be firing. the car on the right is that mercedes suv that was carjacked earlier in the night. in this last photo, by the way, the red circle is, it's reported, highlighting what the eyewitness believes was a pressure cooker bomb. there it is. anyway, there are also two new photos today showing dzhokhar earlier in the night at an atm machine allegedly using a debit card from the man he and his brother carjacked to withdraw the cash. i'm j

hand al-qaeda type attacks usually focus on large concentration shins of pedestrians and people such as buses stadiums, trains, not necessarily open wide streets. so there weren't that many casualties. as many as there were which is tragic it didn't kill as many as al-qaeda has killed in the past. remember this was the first successful bombing since 9/11. all other previous terrorist attacks there have been 95 attempted attacks were stopped by the f.b.i. except for three and those three occurred with shooting attacks so we knew the perpetrator immediately. this was the first successful bombing done since 9/11. >> is there anything in here that tells you that this was domestic related? >> well, i mean you kcan go bot ways on it. obviously you know tax day may be a protest but if tax day and you were protesting the government you would want to hit a government facility. my leaning is that considering the person of interest who they picked up and not necessarily guilty i want to add is of foreign origin that this looks like it's leaning toward that direction. >> do you have a sense
an al qaeda-inspired terrorist attack, which is quite a fate considering how hard it is for them to go under cover. folk, i would like to say a word to our friends up north-- you canadians are a brave and heroic people. if i have said it once, this is the one time i said it.

of the hall marks of terrorism. al qaeda affiliated or inspired groups will try to hit one blast try to cause people to run away and try to hit you at the place where you ran to and there were some reports the second blast was biering than the first. >> this is hallmark of al qaeda one of their operations. >> part of the theory of what happened if they were detonated because they were so close you have two guys dropping two bags you have one guy who dropped both of them and then he is going to detonate them by a cell phone. apparently they have subpoenaed cell phone records from the area. they will try to triangulate where everybody was if there was a signal sent out nearby at 2:50. keep in mind boston marathon day, it's a big party day. a number of the restaurants nearby in boyleton people were outside having lunch, having drinks, cops ran over within seconds minutes of the race. everybody put down your cell phone, put them down, don't touch them. >> they my be the trigger. >> the bomber. >> last night there was a report from the wall street journal among other publications there may be as m
the indications of being al qaeda or al qaeda-affiliated attack. >> there are no suspects. officials are tracking multiple "persons of interest" including a man of middle eastern descent being treated at a local hospital. president obama urged against a rush to judgment not using the word "terrorism" but vowed justice for those responsible. >> make no mistake we will get to the bottom of this. we will find out who did this. we will find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice. >> cities across the country this morning are on high alert for other potential plots, officials say if you see something, say something but the best advise is keep living your life. >> i realize there is no one in custody but is there anything at all that points to the work of international terrorists in this attack? >> officials point out it is significant that no group or individual in this case has claimed responsibility for the attack. they are pouring over the imprint of the bomb trying to compare it to past bombings, other bombs in the so-called
they're safe as well. we know that al-qaeda has camps with the drug cartel on the other side of the mexican border. we know people have been trained to act like they're hispanic when they're radical islamists. we know this is happening and it's insane not to protect yourself and make sure people come in, as most people do, they want the freedoms we have. >> cenk: so now apparently al-qaeda is acting like hispanic. i'm not sure i know what that means, guys, but working hard, loving your family. >> what is he talking about? he's talking about so many things and trying to connect things that don't connect. if you're talking about acting line hispanic, i guess you could say, middle eastern people and hispanic people sometimes have similar features or complexions but i'm not sure what he's suggesting that we do. >> cenk: i think he's slightly off balanced, mentally. >> absolutely. >> cenk: he is actually a sitting u.s. congress person. he thinks there are big al-qaeda camps on the other side of the border like they're getting ready to cross the border, and training how to act hisp

or they were the agent of a foreign power. in the case of al-qaeda and the taliban if you could show that an individual was a member of al-qaeda or taliban then there may be some legal grounds to detain them and try them as an enemy combatant rather than in federal court. but this is masked in legal clothing. it's not actually a legal argument, and we shouldn't confuse these two things. the argument they're making is we should presume from the beginning that any incident involving islamic militancy is some how tied into al-qaeda. as i said, i've done research on this region and this particular conflict for 15 years. while the militants in chechnya have adopted al-qaeda ideology the connection is very slim and they have very different objectives that are very local very parochial and have a lot of to do with russia and very little to do with the united states. >> john: i agree and you're characterizing that as a political approach is profoundly diplomatic. scholar and attorney, christopher swift, thank you for coming tonight. >> thank you. >> john: thank you. one good thing may come o

four bullet points. one says "an operationally ineffective al qaeda deprived of a safe haven from which to plan and conduct operations outside the area." have you seen any change there? >> over the years i have, senator. >> i they don't have a safe haven anymore in pakistan? >> they have a same haven inside of afghanistan in some areas, we're disrupting them but they have a sanctuary in pakistan. >> have you seen any progress there, the safe haven in pakistan? >> the progressive seen inside of afghanistan first -- >> my question is pakistan. >> they have not been able to conduct effective operations nor plan operations from pakistan. >> they don't have a safe haven in pakistan? >> they are still physically there. they are not able to plan and conduct operations from there at this point. >> well, that's very interesting news. today in the press clip, it says reduction of opium by afghans is up again. production is up. according to the united nations counter narcotics official, afghanistan is already the world's largest producer of opium and last year accounted for 74% of the world's opiu
but we know there are al qaeda elements of this revolution. let's stop, this is not a good idea. until we know who's side we should be on. this administration turns against its allies and tries to buy off its enemies. so, if this administration were going to be consistent, it would seem that the thing to do , the thing possibly to expect is for this administration to offer something as the clinton administration did, to north korea, hey, you know, we'll build you a nuclear plant, we'll do something, if you'll just promise us that you won't develop nuclear weapons. well, we saw how that worked. madeline albright and president clinton worked out a heck of a deal. we helped them get nuclear weapons. because of the naivety of that administration. and now we're faced with a very difficult situation and also understanding of north korea continues on this path and iran is not stopped, that what north korea has iran may have and then no one in israel will be safe at all. and israel is considered in their minds the -- in radical islamists' minds the little satan and we're the great satan. and i me

disaffecting his life. al qaeda has designed this thing to have this spider web around the world. and something changes in people's lives, we can go back to the 9/11 highjackers, something can change as well. >> should be carefully here joining any definitive connection between these guys and al qaeda right now, correct? >> i think that's true, we don't have the facts but we do know that he went away and came back and he changed his appearance and planted the bombs and then he became a suicide bomber. there's a lot of facts that add up that respect even supposition. it is going to change out, something changed in his life, like clint was describing, something big changed, he came back, all of a sudden, bombs planted in a suicide vest that's certainly one of the ideals of al qaeda. i agree the facts remain to be seen but a pretty radical change. >> clint what do we know about the six months that the 26-year-old, that the older brother that six months he was in russia? do we know a great deal about what he was doing there? >> that's what we are trying to get a handle on, we know the russian fis,
an arrest in canada, where two suspects are accused of planning a terror plot with al qaeda assistants. we'll tell you how investigators say they prevented an attack. >>> raising the middle for cigarettes. why critics say bad idea. >>> the suspect in the boston marathon bombings admitted to investigators, he and his brother were motivated by religion but says they were not in contact with overseas terror groups. dzhokhar tsarnaev has been charged with making weapons of mass destruction, making a court appearance from his hospital room, bed ridden, he was described as cooperative, forced to write his answers, yes or no. all this as boston fell into silence at 2:50 p.m. to remember the 180 injured and three killed a week ago. joining frus boston, nbc news capitol hill correspondent luke russert. lou, where do we stand on this investigation this morning? >> reporter: good morning, bill. some fascinating developments over the last days of this suspect. you just mentioned right there he has become cooperative with investigators. he is still injured in the throat and tongue area. so he has not b
the suspects were getting help from members of al qaeda in iran. the information did not come as a surprise to the cia and they say al qaeda has had a presence in iran since 2001 but they deny that al qaeda is operating from within their borders. >>> he is accused of sending poison to president barack obama and a judge and a senator. lawyers for kevin curtis said he should be released because there is no physical evidence connecting him to the crime. they did not find anything after they searched his home and a search of his computers did not turn up any evidence but they are still searching for an external hard drive. >> they are trying to drill secretary of homeland security janet napolitano on boarder security and as kyla campbell reports, it is the second one this week on the new immigration bill. >> reporter: they are picking apart the immigration reform bill from last week and they are expected to focus on boarder security. skeptical republicans said the obama administration record is poor but they say something needs to be done but 11 million undocumented immigrants are not going to
by the taliban and by al qaeda in afghanistan. they're very effective weapons, they try to pick these up wherever they can. they use them to make their ieds. >> the fbi is investigating as an act of terrorism. any time bombs are used to target civilians, it is an act of terror. >> reporter: terror, he went on to say, murder, maiming, traumatic amputations by persons unknown, nationality unknown, allegiance unknown. his homeland security secretary ruling out a broader plot. a high-level source going further. >> the senior u.s. official is now telling me that, quote, there is no reporting indicating a foreign connection or any reaction from al qaeda. >> so it might be the video that tells for the forensics. the crime scene still hot, still active. it's already borne witness to ordinary people doing extraordinary things to stop the bleeding, to ease the suffering and to start the healing. >> well, more now on the investigation. the fbi saying fragments of a pressure cooker found at the scene as well as shreds of what might be black nylon bags. that plus the photo we showed you a minute ago that migh
is there are certain bombs that they have bomb footprints. maybe certain ieds used by the taliban by groups such as al-qaeda. any indication from your law enforcement sources that they have any suspicions at this point? >> what i hear at this point in time is they can't rule anything out. it's way too early in the game. they have to look at this device, they have to look at how it is built, they have to look at how devices over in the middle east were built and have been utilized. and pressure cooker bombs have been used in the middle east,@% especially pakistan. they know that. but they also, as i said, it's a very common bomb, if you will. so they have to look at everything. as one person said to me, what was the message of the bomber? what were they trying to say? it's very hard to rule out for anybody at this point in time, the date. it was tax day, it was four or five days before the anniversary of waco. it was patriots day in boston and this was a celebration that was honoring the newtown victims. there's a lot of american, if you will, symbolism around all the elements of the bombing that all the inv
in al qaeda and the overall islamist movement, and we don't know are there other explosives out there? where do they get the radicalism? are there mosques, imams he's meeting with? who did his brother meet be when he was in chechnya? these are only questions that can be obtained if he does not get his miranda rights. even though, there's the public safety exception. that's going to expire in 48 hours, and after that, he can lawyer up and refuse to speak. right now is the only opportunity to go into the treasure trove of information that only he has. >> excuse me, congressman. i do want to get to the intelligence because i know you both have been briefed by the administration this week. senator feinstein, what can you tell us about the plot at this point? was there any foreign involvement, and especially, what do you know, if anything, about the older brother, tamerlan's trip to russia last year? >> we do not know specifics. however, we do know there was very likely a call from russia before he went back to dagistan and chechnya asking about it. i think just conjecture would lead one t
with russia, but they've also made an alliance with al qaeda. you have to understand they've worked with al qaeda in pakistan, afghanistan, one of my constituent's sons was killed in iraq by nine chechen rebels, so they're in the fight. >> the younger brother, dzhokhar's russian social media page listed several chechen causes. and when he was assigned by his high school english teacher to write an essay about something that he felt passionate about, he chose the troubled land of his ancestors, chechnya. as evidence of the continued and deep fracture between the two countries, in 2011, the fbi questioned tamerlan tsarnaev after russia expressed concerns about his radicalization, but yesterday the dagestan affiliate denied having any connection to the brothers. in a statement the group announced it was not fighting against the united states of america. we are at war with russia, which is not only responsible for the occupation of the caucasus but also for the heinous crime against muslims. president obama has not addressed chechnya in any measurable way. the administration remains squarely fo
combatant is aauthoriz committed the attacks of september 11th, 2001 or a person that supported al qaeda or the taliban. now that worked back when the combat was related to 9/11. but if it has spread and you all of a sudden have extremist groups whether inspired in chechnya or somewhere else killing american civilians and done by americans, isn't it the term that needs to change rather than us say the person doesn't fit the term? >> well, erin, that's a great question. in fact, i think what you're pointing to is that authorization used military force which was drafted in the wake of 9/11 is really outdated and doesn't fit the kind of changing threat that we're facing. we ear seriousry degraded al qaeda's core. but now we're seeing the spinoffs and franchises and a lot of self radicalized cases. and that's going to require a different approach and a different legal basis. but simply because the threat environment changed doesn't mean that our constitution is so flexible that we can ignore its provisions. i do think that what we ought to call the administration to do is come forward with a
walk an enemy combatant. he was the spokesman for al qaeda after 9/11. this president has not designated anyone as an enemy combatant. what does that matter? all the information that led las from enemy combatant that we interrogate the over a long period of time. i want to be able to talk to him without a lawyer present to gather intelligence about future attacks that may have come our way. none of the information can be used against him in his trial. i am know worried -- a first-year law student can convict this guy -- >> with the videotape. >> with a million things. >> with the videotape. >> i am worried about having time with him to establish a rapport and to gather intelligence without his lawyer being present. >> one of the oddities of the statute, in order to be eligible, you have to have a connection to -- >> al qaeda. >> how much time do you have to find that? someone doesn't announce i'm al qaeda. >> this is the way it works. if i were president of the united states, here's what i would do in this case. i would say there is plenty of evidence to suggest this is a
you are saying you have to have some connection to -- >> to al-qaeda. >> how many time do you have to find that? someone doesn't announce i'm al-qaeda. >> this is the way it works. if i were the president of the united states this is what i would do. i would say there's plenty of evidence to suggest this was a radical jihad attack. it was motivated to kill as many americans because of add call jihadist thought. the older brother went to one of the most radical areas in chechnya. they have produced more footers for al-qaeda than probably anyplace on the planet except the mideast. i would say at this early stanley we want to know more about what the brother did in this radical part of the world. and i don't believe this guy. he has every reason in the world to deny that he's a low level guy. i want to take time to put the puzzle together. we didn't know three days after 9/11 if lynn laud in was involved. this is a ridiculous concept to have to make this decision within three days. i don't want to use any of the information against him in court. he has every right to not self incrimin
war on terror is almost essentially a war against al qaeda. and we've seen this sort of al qaeda affiliated terrorism. this was an entirely different thing. >> well, we've decimated-- it seems-- the al qaeda leadership to a great degree. but the ideas of al qaeda, the kind of franchises of al qaeda, preachers who are preaching things in various languages are all over the place. >> rose: it seems to be that people who become radicalized and then either because they can go on the internet and follow some -- somebody preaching -- >> it can only be discredited by the decency and effectiveness moral and otherwise of our way of life and -- which has -- would not react well to the 9/11 aftermath. there was so many things that we did wrong. whether it had to do with the waging of war or the trampling of civil liberties and i hope that we've learned our lesson. so when i first started hearing words from certain senators about "let's treat him as an enemy combatant." i don't know the motivation, but i blanch at it. >> rose: yeah. >> this is a country -- >> rose: they modified that and said
claiming to put on youtube praising al qaeda and usama bin laden and calling for jihad against the infidels. that will be americans. how did this happen? are there more? will this happen again? tonight right now here in watertown the big issue is how do authorities make sure he is captured and taken alive so he can get some answers to the so many questions that everyone, and all authorities will have on how we got here today, right now at this point. so the situation is still very fluid, on going at this moment. we believe he is surrounded. we just have to see how this plays out. neil: and as, eric, as you pointed out crucial to authorities on the scene, who i talked to throughout the day, they really do want to get, certainly with his brother last night in the shootout because if there are links to chechen rebels and islamic extremes as beee insinuated by a lot of law enforcement officials who note the ties to chep chen rebels them -- chep chen rebels them because it would be a crucial link and address any of those concerns. that begs the next question, here, eric are and i know you can't
other repolitics in the north caucasus region have direct ties to al qaeda and terrorist groups that have direct ties to afghani terrorists. this would be the al qaeda in the caucasus branch of al qaeda. we even know that the number two was there in 1997. there are several groups in chechnya and dagestan that have been deemed terrorists organizations by the united states and there are laws and insurgencies in those countries in those republics that resulted in so many bad attacks on russia we should have a certain amount of sympathy for what russia has gone through as a result of al qaeda's orientated attacks by the islamic extremists groups. >> it does seem that like jose padilla there might have been anger there about chechnya and using that as a rationale for joining jihady movements. having said that. one of the things that gets pointed out continuously is that if you are chechen, your beef is with russia and not the united states. >> yes but to a point. remember, chris, it's not just the chechnya conflict that was involved here. dagestan is really the far more important pla
. in fact, they said they were getting support from al qaeda in iran. >> the individuals were receiving support from al qaeda elements located in iran. now, i can tell you that there is no information to indicate that these attacks were state sponsored. now, the government, zoraida is saying -- they're vehemently denying it could be operating out of their country. the chairman of the sub committee out of counter terrorism. he was told an attack was going to be censored on a commuter train from canada to the united states. authorities say they thwarted this attack before it could get going. but, again, these two individuals will be in court here in toronto at 10:00 eastern time. >> i think he actually said specifically new york city as well and that he was very grateful they thwarted that attack. thank you very much. ted rowlands. police say they arrested two al qaeda terrorists. the pair is to have aprofile similar to the suspects in the boston bombings. that event in madrid is expected to draw 26,000 runners. still ahead heavy rains and spring you that not a good combination in the nat

was reluctant to use the word terrorism and link it with al qaeda. we saw that a little bit last week, a day before the word "terrorist" was used. this is the line the republicans will use against the president, that he's soft on terror. we're already seeing senior republicans accusing the fbi of dropping the ball on this one, senator lindsay graham and senior members of the house. >> are they justified? is there any way of knowing how many threats like this come into the u.s. on a daily, even hourly basis, and whether in the grand scheme of thing this one ought to have raised the flags? >> i'm not privy to the particular piece of intelligence on this. i imagine obviously they would have thousands of these and things on an annual basis. lindsey graham has said there are two possible ways that the fbi dropped the ball on this. first, it could have been a systemic failure in the sense that the procedures were following up on these warnings were floored or secondly there was some individual floor related to this. >> briefly, because you have said that, look, despite the fact that this may now h

a similar label from the al-qaeda and taliban captions committee that same year. the russian government asked the fbi to investigate the older brother because he was "a follower of radical islam and a strong believer and had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the united states to join what the are you shawns called an unspecified underground group. the fbi said it found no evidence of terrorist activity. that revealation according to a member of the house intelligence committee is causing unease at the bureau. >> at this point i think there is a great deal we don't know about it. clearly we were given a request to look into his background prior to the trip. there are a lot of palpitations. what if anything did they miss and that will be heavily scrutinized. >> this is the first we have had identified and significant that it is one that has these islamic ties, judge. >> judge jeanine: you wrote a book about americans being recruited by the terrorists. were you surprised by any of this? >> we are early in the investigation and one of the things i outlined in "the next
